Herzog Anton Ulrich-Museum
Description
The Herzog Anton Ulrich-Museum (Braunschweig, State of Lower Saxony, Germany) holds a collection of about 30.000 coins and medals, ranging from antiquity to the modern era. The collection was founded by the dukes of the house Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel with a focus on ancient coins as well as coins and medals of the Guelphs (particularly outstanding is the collection of Northern and Central German bracteates). In the 19th and 20th centuries the collection was expanded by the acquisition of important collections and treasure troves. Paul Jonas Meier bought a substantial collection of French and German Art Nouveau plaques and medals for the museum in the first quarter of the 20th century. Over the centuries, the coin cabinet came about to harbor a universal collection of German, European and non-European coins, among them ca 2.000 Greek and 2.500 Roman coins.

Description
The coin collection of the chair of ancient history at the Catholic University of Eichstaett-Ingolstadt was founded in the mid-eighties. Since its establishment, the collection has been gradually expanded and missing pieces have been acquired, so that there are now 353 coins in total, that cover the range from classical Greece up to late antiquity and byzantine times. The collection contains mostly roman coins, although there are both Greek and Hellenistic coins, as well as mintages from the periphery of the Roman Empire, like Parthian and Celtic coins. The focus lies on Roman Imperial coinage, which make up the largest part of the collection, and is framed by smaller assemblages from Roman Republican times and late antiquity. Because of the lack of a proper edition, since 2013, the Eichstaett coin collection became a big part of everyday teaching at the university and contributed to various student- and research-projects, that helped systematise, edit and even exhibit several of these coins.

Description
The Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) owns roughly 30.000 coins and medals, ranging from Greek and Roman specimens to modern currencies. These originate from various sources, such as the collections of Gerlach, Heerdegen, Luthart, Pick, Sinugowitz, Varnhagen, Voit von Salzburg, Will, Zucker, as well as the items of the “Ilse und Ulrich Zwicker Stiftung”. The Will collection, consisting of about 12.000 pieces, and the Zwicker foundation with its approx. 11.000 objects, make roughly two thirds of the whole lot. The eldest collection was composed by Friedrich Voit von Salzburg between 1845 and 1858. The most recent accession, the objects of the “Ilse und Ulrich Zwicker Stiftung”, took place at the beginning of this century. The chronological and regional emphasis of the coins differs by each collection with a particular focus on antiquity, from the Greek and Romans until the end of the Byzantine times.

Description
The coin collections of the Goethe University are located in the Institute for Archaeological Sciences, and reside partly in the Antiquities Collection of Abteilung I (Classical Archaology) and partly in the collections of Abteilung II (Archaeology and History of the Roman Provinces and the Archaeology of Coins, Money and the Economy in the Ancient World). The Antiquities Collection of the Goethe University, based at the Classical Archaeology Department of the Institute for Archaeological Sciences includes around 250 ancient coins alongside a rich collection of ancient vases, glass, lamps, terracottas and other objects. Roman coins form the focus of the coin collection, supplemented by a small number of Greek, Jewish, medieval and modern coins. The coins are regularly used in teaching as study objects, especially for iconographic questions, but also for numismatic identification exercises. The largest part of the numismatic collections of Department II of the Institute for Archaeological Sciences at the Goethe University Frankfurt pertains to around 30,000 plaster cast of ancient coins, encompassing all periods of antiquity. The casts were originally made as research tools for scholars such as Konrad Kraft, Richard Delbrueck and Susanne Grunauer-von Hoerschelmann. A particular strength of the plaster cast collection is lies in the Roman Provincial Coinage. The department also owns two collections of original coins: a teaching collection of around 75 pieces, and a special collection of roman coins with countermarks, encompassing around 300 pieces.

Münzsammlung des Seminars für Alte Geschichte der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität

Nomisma URI

Maison d'édition
Universität Freiburg
Description
The Seminar of Ancient History holds more than 12,000 coins of the Roman Imperial period and Late Antiquity. Their majority originates from a collection which Herbert Nesselhaus, the former Professor of Ancient History, was able to purchase in 1961 from the Archbishopric of Freiburg. The collection had found a temporary home there some twenty years earlier: Between 1900 and 1926 the Geheimer Oberbaurat Heinrich Wefels from Erlangen built a collection of c. 14,000 coins, which he had acquired at various auctions. About 10,300 are coins of Roman emperors and an additional 2,400 represent provincial issues. Wefels focussed on the Imperial period, but did add both earlier and later coinages, too. About 950 Byzantine coins, 360 Roman Republican ones, 220 Greek issues, and 22 Celic coins bear witness to these secondary areas of interest. Although the Seminar für Alte Geschichte is not any longer able to purchase additional coins, its collection was augmented through generous donations by Herbert A. Cahn, Otto Feld and Gerold Walser. Today the collection is complemented by a scientific numismatic library, which again originates in the collector Heinrich Wefels.

Coin collection of the Archaeological Museum of the Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg

Maison d'édition
Universität Halle
Description
In 1841, the United Friedrichs-University Halle-Wittenberg decided to set up an archaeological University collection. However, this project could not be implemented until 1849. In this year the first quite small archaeological gallery was opened as the first public art collection in Halle. The core of this museum was the "Münzkabinett" formed by Johann Heinrich Schulze (1687-1744), which already provided access to original coins for lectures and exercises on ancient numismatics during his life-time. By doing this Schulze became a founder of numismatic teaching at University. This core collection, the "Numophylacium Schulzianum", can thus be linked to the development of the European Enlightenment in the 18th century in Halle, and it still is preserved here today. Almost half of today’s inventory of c. 5.000 coins (a total of c. 1.400 Greek, some Byzantine, and Oriental coins, the remaining two thirds are Roman) originates from Schulze’s collection.

Description
The Coin collection of Kiel University is kept by two institutions: The Antikensammlung of the University of Kiel holds a collection of circa 1,100 Greek and Roman coins, housed in the Kunsthalle zu Kiel. The collection for the most part originates from donations of the Danish king Christian VIII Friedrich (1786–1848) as well as acquisitions by Peter Wilhelm Forchhammer (1801–1894), professor of Classical Archaeology in Kiel, later supplemented by further purchases and donations. Roman Imperial coinage constitutes the vast majority of the collection, that was conceived to be used for teaching purposes and today is occasionally incorporated into the seminars of Classical Archaeology in Kiel. Only a few years ago, the Institute of Classical Studies at Kiel University (Department of Ancient History) started to compile a small numismatic collection. Currently, it comprises nearly 80 ancient (mainly Roman) coins.

Description
The Department of Numismatics and Monetary History at the University of Vienna is the only autonomous university department of this orientation in Europe. At the same time, it is the only place where it is possible to study the subject of numismatics and monetary history in its full methodological and technical variety, covering all eras from antiquity to the modern period. Due to its expertise on coins, medals, monetary symbols and monetary equivalents covering all periods and cultures, as well as the associated political, economic, social and cultural questions, the field of numismatics and monetary history is firmly established in numerous key research areas of the Faculty. Furthermore, it significantly contributes to the basic research profile of the University of Vienna, especially in the fields of classical studies and medieval research. The range of courses extends from extension curricula for students in bachelor’s programmes to a doctoral programme in numismatics. The Department offers around 30 hours of numismatic teaching per week, and provides various networking opportunities, as well as useful complimentary courses for almost all degree programmes. Through its extensive study collection, specialised library, catalogue collection and the “Numismatische Zentralkartei” (NZK, numismatic central catalogue) – including around 1.5 million coins documented in photographs - the Department offers working opportunities that are unique in the world and that international academics regularly make use of. The Department has an extensive national and international network with all institutions working in the field of numismatics – not least through its graduates. In many ways, the Department’s influence extends beyond the University and academia. The Department regularly offers summer schools that are targeted at international early stage researchers.

The Coin cabinet in the Martin von Wagner Museum (Würzburg University Museum). The Julius-Maximilians-University of Würzburg (JMU) holds about 1.200 coins, medals and para-numismatic objects from the 7th BCE to modern times with a focus on Greek and Roman coins. Due to the near complete destruction in World War II the coin cabinet in the Martin von Wagner Museum (MvW) is mainly build by donations after 1945 and by a few selected acquisitions. The most important of those donations is the Coll. H. Wellhöfer – c. 400 classical Greek coins with an emphasis on iconography and aesthetics.
